They failed to destroy the Minority's right to block legislation proposed by the Majority, which the Democrat Party will need in two years. Obviously, the will of the voters is considered as just another obstacle to real leftwing change, and apparently the main foundation of our Republic is just not democracy friendly for the Democratic Party of the 21st century.
Senate Republicans must demand that debates, discussions, and votes on vital legislation commence at once! Legislative business has been ignored for three weeks! Senators are not elected to conduct backroom deals, but to administer the people's business of cutting spending and reducing government. The lower House of Congress has already succeeded on this account.
Our deliberative body of government needs to deliberate, not obstruct business. That is how our Founding Fathers created the Senate to act, and that is how our modern politicians must conduct their affairs. Deliberation is admirable in most non-wartime conditions, but backroom obstructionism is despicable in all cases.
